The Tri-Cities Steel Band Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Richland, Washington. We promote world music in the Mid-Columbia region through education and music performance. The organization currently sponsors four performance bands: two steel drum bands (OK2Botay and Bram Brata) and two marimba bands (Baduku and Bahuru). 

Steel Drum and Marimba Classes

TCSBA offers steel drum and marimba classes for children throughout the year. We offer camps in the summer and class sessions in the fall and spring. Our classes teach music fundamentals in a fun, creative and energetic environment. Our instructors and student helpers provide hands on instruction to help students master their new skills. 

Schedule a Performance

All four bands are known throughout the Mid-Columbia region for their fun, musically rich performances. The bands perform at public events throughout the Pacific Northwest. Contact us to schedule a gig.
